One Year On – Progress Report

June 30, 2013

Bike on pintIt’s over a year since we locked our bikes at the foot of Pen-y-Ghent, marking the start of this important endeavour.   We’ve cycled to 36 UK destinations mentioned in Half Man Half Biscuit songs, of which Nick believes there to be a total of 173.  At this rate we’ll be finished by mid-2017, although we’re getting quicker and have more expensive bikes now.  Also, we’re planning to do loads of the London ones over one weekend, hopefully as a large group undertaking, so let us know if you fancy joining us.

Here are some more facts for fans of strategies and logistics:

Longest distance in a day: 70m Dormansland to Ryde

Longest tour: 220m Wolverhampton to Leek via Shropshipre, Cheshire, Staffordshire etc.

Max height cycled: 554m, to base of Lord Hereford’s Knob

Max height walked: 690m, to summit of Lord Hereford’s Knob
